Interesting linkage between wound healing and hepatoprotec-tive activities
In a recent issue, using murine d-galactosamine/lipopoly-saccharide model of hepatic failure, Dr. Lian et al. demonstratehepatoprotective action of gentiopicroside due to the inhibition ofapoptosis , which has been previously demonstrated to possesswoundhealing activities on cultured chicken embryonic broblasts. Thus, we would like to call attention to an interesting linkagebetween hepatoprotective and wound healing activities. There is asimilar coincidence with asiaticosides, active constituents of Cen-tella asiatica, which have been used in the treatment of wounds: Inour laboratory, we have observed in cultured T15 broblasts cellsthat wound healing is promoted by asiaticoside , whose hep-atoprotective activities have been reported recently in the murined-galactosareported thJohns Worof hepatic din culturedinhibitory acells has be
